      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

"We probably could have saved ourselves, but we were too damned lazy to try very hard ... and too damn cheap," he once suggested carving into a wall on the Grand Canyon, as a message for flying-saucer creatures.

"We do, doodley do, doodley, doodley do,

What we must, muddily must muddily must, muddily must;

Muddily do, muddily do, muddily do, muddily do,

Until we bust, bodily bust, bodily bust, bodily bust."

What was the disclaimer at the beginning of all of his books?

 

 

"All people and places are purely coincidental." (? is that right?)

Q: So is this really the final book? Timequake was supposed to be your farewell, and then Dr. Kevorkian came along.

 

VONNEGUT: I don't fucking know. I keep thinking I'll die. Why do you think I smoke so much?

 

Q: How many packs are you up to a day?

 

VONNEGUT: Never mind. It's none of your fucking business. Fuck off—you know what I'm saying?

 

Q: You were one of the few people to walk out of Dresden. Now, some fifty years later, you're among the last men standing.

 

Vonnegut: Every so often I run into someone on the street who announces to me that they are really a survivor. I mean, who the fuck isn't? If you're not dead, you're a survivor. [Laughs]

 

Q: When I was reading Dr. Kevorkian, I was reminded a bit of a Japanese film from a couple years ago called "Afterlife."

 

Vonnegut: I haven't heard of it.

 

Q: It's premise is that those who have recently died are taken to a waiting room for one week, during which time they must choose only a single memory from their entire lives which will endlessly replay for them, while all of their other memories are erased.

 

Vonnegut: So everybody's fucking, right?

 

:rawk:
